Parsi was also the court language of several Indian kings until the British banned the use of the language, after capturing India in the eighteenth century. The Indian Mogul kings had made Persian their court language. One can still find the engravings filled with Gold on the walls of the Red Fort in Delhi, which reads; 'Agar Ferdows dar jahan ast hamin ast o hamin ast o hamin ast'. The meaning of this sentence is that, if there is a paradise on the earth then it is here it is here it is here.
Parsis migrated to a different world to preserve their religion. Their experience is similar to the dilemma what other minority communities face; questions with regard to their race, religion, customs, language, their extinction and survival, identity and assimilation, tradition and the modern world. When oppresses in their homeland, the Parsis took refuge in India many centuries ago. Staying firm as far as their identity is concerned; they have suitably prospered themselves and also contributed to the polity, economy and civic society of India. It is proved that the Parsi community is the model community in India by providing valuable contribution to the rich religious, social and cultural diversities in India. They came to India in the eighth century, landed in Diu, and afterwards provided shelter in Sanjan (Gujarat) by Jadhav (Jadi) Rana, the local Hindu King. With the advancing years, the Parsis have conveniently adopted the language, customs and the mode of living of the people of Gujarat. Thus, the Gujarati language became the native language of the Parsis living in India and sari, the garment worn by Parsi women. When the British arrived in India and the city of Mumbai was renovated, the Parsis shifted their base from the cities and villages of Gujarat to Mumbai.
